Hacking a template need help with background issue (4 posts)

    I am setting up a wordpress site as we speak. I hacked the CSS to add a custom background. Now the custom background makes the sidebars look strange. It seems the white background behind the sidebars only comes down a little past the sidebars. Is there any way to hack it and get the white to flow all the way down like the body of the page? Here is a link so you can see what I mean:


    The bottoms do not line up on most pages. Any way to make the center white all the way to the footer?

    do a websearch for 'clear float'

    possibly to be applied to/after the div with the css id #container

    The clear would need to go at the end of the container(before the closing </div> of the container) to clear the floats on both the sidebar and content elements, which will then allow the container background to span the height of both the sidebar and content.
